Mixtape review image


Mixtape is a bar that looks like a middle school boy’s dream living room. There are bean bag chairs, a giant projection TV, and a board game selection rivaling Toys-R-Us (RIP). All of this would be great on its own, but Mixtape also serves some of the best drinks in the city. There’s nowhere else we know where you play Guess Who while sipping cocktails this good. This is our go-to spot for impressing visitors who aren’t yet convinced that Pittsburgh is cool, and you can expect to see people in sweatpants on their laptops taking advantage of the free wifi right next to groups pregaming for a night out.
